RUSSELL — The group Artists at Large is featured in the new exhibit at the Deines Cultural Center. The opening reception will be from 5-8 p.m. Friday, April 22, at the Center, located at 820 North Main in Russell.
Artists at Large is a recently formed group of dedicated artists in Great Bend, and they meet once a month to share ideas and pieces on which they have been working. Currently there are 25 members.
The artists work in a variety of media – clay, collage, watercolor, pastel, acrylic and oil – using a wide variety of ideas for inspiration. Some work representationally, some prefer an abstracted realism, and occasionally, they might wander into the world of complete abstraction.
The members find joy in seeing what other members of the group are focused on and intrigued with, and are always looking for ways to expand our own approach to creativity. Occasionally, different members will present demonstrations of their own techniques at representing an idea, or new techniques they have tried.
The Artist at Large Exhibition will be at the Deines Cultural Center April 22 through May 27. Admission is free.
